There are times, while "surfing
the net" I run into a site I feel is worth a great
deal more consideration than it has been receiving. A token
link exchange or an award just doesn't "cut it "
sometimes. This position cannot be applied for, nor can it
be reached by any link exchange. In one case a site came to my
attention through an award application. I certainly encourage you
to apply for my awards but it does not guarantee a position in my

This site deserves a spotlight for many different
reasons. It is just full of rooms to visit and the Queen
of Kaos Kastle has a wonderful way of showing you around her
domain. Her tour is very interesting and she has a wonderful
african "violet room" you shouldn't miss.
I enjoyed looking at her beautiful collection of african violets and
there is access to other violet links she has gathered together for
I am proud to say this is a Canadian site!

A new look at
now owned and operated by
sisters, Virginia and Sylvia.
and Sylvia have been very busy ladies, they took ownership of Harborcrest
Gardens last fall and if their website is an example of what
they have in store for us there are exciting things to come! I
have been browsing through their african violet list and am very
impressed with the selection they have. I understand they sell
plants only but they are at very reasonable prices. I see they offer a
free catalog to online customers.
Go now, enjoy your visit and tell them
Rachel says hello.

Canadian Website Club" gave me a boost way back
when I first started, by featuring Rachel's Reflections
as a new club member. The website has grown by leaps and
bounds and it couldn't happen to a nicer couple. Opps did
I say "happen"???? That was certainly a bad
choice of words!!! Carrie and Dan have worked long and
hard at this project and it is obvious by the request for
volunteers on their front page that it has grown
substantially! Go now and explore a site I am sure you
will enjoy. It puts any Canadian in touch with who they
really are and who knows.... you just might meet your
neighbour there. Their button and link continues to
reside in my Thunder
Carrie and Dan on your success and certainly on your new

Here is a place where you can find comfort in cyber hugs
and caring people when all your medical problems seem too
much to bear alone. Visit the site, take advantage of the

the members offer each other. Then realize you can be a
part of all that too! Their cyber arms are wide open to
embrace you in their community in their space on the net.
They offer their prayers, love, respect, kindness,

severe, what ever your mood......you are always welcome

|July 18, 1999 Colleen's Corner
Today living in the fast lane has become a way of life
for most people and now more than ever we need a quiet,
peaceful calm corner where we can relax and just be still
for a moment. Sit for a bit, read the poetry and let the
rest of the world rush on by while you enjoy this
beautiful site and see the world through this ladies eyes.
I first came upon Colleen's Corner a while back when we
exchanged banners and have been drawn back to visit time
and again. Today I present it to you in hopes you will
enjoy and relax as I did. Browse through her collection
of quotes on different subjects, read her gardening tips
and tricks on bulbs, pruning, planting, watering and more.
Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and then sign her guestbook
to let her know how much you appreciate and enjoyed her
PS... I voted for TiKi .... my four footed vacum cleaners
would never forgive me if I didn't.
June 8th, 1999 Wolfheart's Fishing Page
Attention, heads up and lines reeled in.... take a break
to click on the banner below and sign the guestbook of an
avid fisherman. If you recall, I featured "Mahumba"
in this section a couple of months ago, now meet a friend
of his. Wolfheart.... a handsome blond haired, blue eyed
24 year old fisherman with dreams that will never be
fully realized. Mahumba and Wolfheart had fishing plans
laid out for the future, a "someday" trip they
were working towards. These plans and a family's pride
and joy came crashing down on April 6, 1999 with
Wolfhearts sudden death. His death saddened many. His
father is bravely carrying on this web site in memory of
his beloved son. Go now and visit this special site, sign
the guestbook, read the "Fisherman's Prayer"
and give thanks that we can do this much for a mother and
father's empty arms.
|May 3, 1999 Rosemary's Dreams
This is a very special one. The web master is a personal
friend of mine and I am amazed at her accomplishments in
this past year. This special lady had just become a widow,
when her very wise and thoughtful son in law sold her his
outgrown computer. She survived the loneliness of this
first year with the computer as her companion. She calls
him "Pally". The closest she had been to a
computer previous to that is a printout from one. Take
into consideration she has never had any lessons, nor
does she work with the aid of a webpage editor then
browse around her site and marvel as I do at the work and
time and patience she has put into this making up this
beautiful web page.
|February 22, 1999 Mahumba's Fishing Page
I don't know how many fishermen come through this site,
but I am one woman who "fishes" and I enjoy it.
This webmaster happens to be my son, but if you take a
minute to examine the site you will see I am not biased.
He knows his "stuff" when it comes to fish and
has some fantastic hints that will be of interest to the
serious fisher person. He even has campfire recipes for
you! Yes... he eats fish too at times, though he is a
serious believer in catch and release. Just to examine
the photo's he has on site makes it a worthwhile visit.
Last October, he helped deliver his first child, a son,
and is already planning on teaching Jory the "tricks
of the trade"
In this case this
site was brought to my attention by an award
I certainly encourage anyone to apply for them, but
it does not necessarily guarantee consideration for
This site easily won
my "Excellent Site2see Award" this week and
it was obviously an award much deserved ... you can
determine that as soon as you enter. It has something
to offer to every stage of life and will keep you
mesmerized for hours. I am still in the "discovery"
process of judging this one and though I am by no
means finished going through this site I feel
justified in releasing my "rave review" of
interactive portal site for the whole family."
Congratulations (again) to
Robert P. Kolb
for a job very well done.
